In her touching exclusive interview with OK!, former Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle opened up about her enduring friendship with I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here co-star Caitlyn Jenner. The 36-year-old singer revealed that the pair are still in touch and enjoyed "a long chat" recently.
She also explained how close she is to Ian Wright – whose children are around the same age as her daughter Anaíya – and that she "adores" Kate Garraway after meeting the pair during her time on the hit ITV show.
During the interview, Nadine looked back on her time in the jungle fondly. She shared her advice for the fresh crop of stars who have just entered the I'm A Celeb… castle and recalled what day to day life was like in camp.
When asked if she was still in touch with her campmates, Nadine said: "I am! I had a lovely long chat with Caitlyn the other day." She and Caitlyn formed a lasting bond during their stint in the jungle in 2019.
She added: "Ian and I hit it off straight away – from day one when we were on the boat together, we became really good friends. He has two daughters around Anaíya’s age and they’re really good friends so we see each other all the time.
"Kate… I adore her; she is just an angel. I had a really good bunch, I wish I could just click my fingers and take us all back. We’d wear the same clothes, sit in the sunshine and take in the fresh air. Yeah, you have all the horrible trials but they’re actually such a short part of your day."
Nadine said she'd go back "next week" if they asked her, explaining that there was something about the experience that made her feel "so alive."
She explained: "Everything becomes almost primal. Your sense of smell becomes really strong, your eyesight becomes amazing – there’s something about it that just makes you feel so alive.
"I should get my campmates all together and we should go back for the craic."
She also shared her advice to future contestants, adding: "Wait for the jungle to come back and do that instead of the castle!
'I slept in a castle in Wales' doesn’t sound as good as 'I slept in a jungle in Australia for three weeks'. But if you can’t do that, I would say relax. Enjoy your time with the people you’re there with and take it all in."
When asked whether former bandmate Kimberley Walsh and ex Jason Bell had given her the Strictly Come Dancing bug, Nadine said: "No, they haven’t. I love watching Strictly and sometimes when I watch it I dance around my house and think, 'Look at me, I’m a professional dancer,' and then I realise that’s just me in my living room being a bit delusional.
"I’m not a professional dancer at all. I think it would be really difficult and I’d be absolutely shocking at it. I would love to be one of the singers in the Strictly band though. I would love to do that rather than the dancing. They do such great songs!"
